Hi! I'm Jaremy Joy

I'm April's husband, and unlike her, I'm the kind of doctor who can actually help you in an emergency.

My wife made me this page so I'd have a link on the dinner party website because ER docs like me tend to be anti-establishment & avoid LinkedIn like the plague.

 

About me:

IMG_1971.JPG
  • Born & raised in Pierre, SD (Go Governors! <--Yep, that's an actual mascot.)
  • I was a high school & college wrestler. As a result, I really love food after years of starving myself to cut weight. 
  • April & I met the old-fashioned way...on Match.com. That was back before they even had an app & you had to email back and forth. Our first date lasted 7 hours.
  • We have 1 daughter named Ripley (2 yrs old). I picked out her name when I was 14 years old after seeing Ellen Ripley kick some ass in the movie Alien. (<--This is not a joke.)
  • I work as an Emergency Medicine Doc at St. John's, St. Joe's, and Woodwinds hospitals. Don't choke tonight. My heimlich is not gentle.
 

Ice-Breakers

Here are some things you can ask me about that will result in an interesting, potentially inappropriate story:

  • "What kind of weird things have you seen in the ER?" (I'll reply by saying, "Oh wow, I don't even know, I always forget about them right after my shift."Your follow up question is: "Your wife said you'd say that. How about telling me about one of the following:"
    • The Hmong exorcism [WARNING: highly inappropriate content]
    • The little kid with the kleenex wad stuck in her nose [super adorable story]
    • The brush tee...as in the golf tee with the bristles on it. [story that will make you feel like you've really got your shit together compared to some other people.]
  • "Why won't you take your wife to Japan?"
  • "I heard you knew a guy named GABBE (pronounced 'Gabby') in the Navy. How exactly did he get his call sign?"
    • {warning: mildly inappropriate content that is likely to lead to more inappropriate content as the conversation goes on.]
